    Hi Mizana, welcome to the forum . . :)

    Is that a typical Turkish / Marmaris two person rowing boat ?

    She doesn't look that small to me, what are her sizes, length, beam, draft, empty weight ?

    I think the proposed conversion could be done, she will not be a racing sailboat though, but she'll be able to sail if you shift the crew's weight around for ballast and add some appendages like a rudder and something to offer leeway resistance, like leeboards or a daggerboard or a centerboard, or you could try first if the existing keel beam offers sufficient leeway resistance already. For the rig a balanced lug looks like a good option to me for this boat.

    Next links might provide some tips & tricks...

    She has a boomed spritsail rig, which is another option for your boat, and is also possible without a boom.

    A sprit is a small spar reaching diagonally from low on a mast to the upper outer corner of the sail.

    On below picture the sprit is hiding on the other side of the sail. Also, it's possible to perform a jib on a sprit sail rig.

    LADYBUG, she's not a conversion, but here as an example of the balanced lug rig.

    * Note that the whole rig fits into the boat for rowing or trailering or storage.

    Mizana, that is a handsome boat you have. I like the idea of a lateen rig, like the middle picture of your last post above, because it looks traditional for the Med. I have no idea how it would handle though.
